Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from All City Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A knowledgeable appraisal from All City Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

All City Appraisal can help you with these decisions. All City Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from All City Appraisal is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from All City Appraisal. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
